    Alright, so it has been a majority consensus that leaders don't change enough throughout the game based off of their affinity. (Hey Hutama, that wifi headset isn't impressing anybody)

    Anyways, what if hybrid affinities had their own very unique leader screens late game.

    For example, Lena Ebner goes full Purity/Supremacy. You have a diplomatic meeting with her, and how does she look? She rests on a nice red Matrix like chair as a Robot does all the talking for her. All she does is merely look at you and make occasional facial expressions.

    This would perhaps be more appropriate if affinities went a bit farther and a tier 5 of units would be introduced. (Other affinity leaders would pale in comparison to this image of hybrid Lena)

    Frankly id rather not see the leader screens at all, it's all just distracting fluff.

    I agree that hybrids should have their unique aesthetics for leader screens, but I'd also like to see backgrounds that develop from sparse, to a full base version based on sponsor, to affinity variants.

    For example, Fielding could have a classic board room, Bolivar an Xcom HQ-esq military base with holograms, and Kavitha a temple.

    It is one of the rare moments where leader and sponsor personality shows, something that is sorely lacking in the game beyond menus.

    It's called Immersion.

    @topic: I agree.

    It's actually called expecting more than what the game is designed to give. The designs in Starships illustrate where your leaders go after years and years of evolution and interplanetary travel. You can't exceed that in BE, because BE is the baseline before any of that evolution is achieved.

    So unless they redesigned all the leader art in Starships to make them more wacky, I don't see this happening.

    Starships level would be fine, at least its more than a change of clothes and glow in the dark contacts.

    By the end affinity quotes in BE, even the Starshps appearances are a tame representation.

    Regardless, BE should not be held back to accommodate a lightweight mobile game.

    i doubt that floppy game will even be updated to have the new factions. I'd say screw it.
